This question already has an answer here:

I followed the instructions and downloaded the program, installed, restarted and I was brought to the Linux startup page. I was then panicking, how the hell do I switch back to Windows? Why can't I access the local drive I used to have?

I gave in and I don't want Ubuntu anymore. How do I switch back and uninstall Ubuntu?

I'm using a laptop. Sorry if you have bad impressions on me because I only used Ubuntu for a game.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If you have windows and ubuntu you can select windows on startup and even hide that purple operating system screen you get a startup. If you don't have Windows anymore well.. reinstall Windows (and delete the partitions the windows installer will display as "unknown").
